The Chicago Bulls were founded in 1966. The team reached its high point after Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, joined it in 1984. Jordan led the Bulls to their first NBA Championship win in 1991 over the Los Angeles Lakers. The team went on to win the championship in ‘92, ‘93, ‘96, ‘97, and ‘98. In the 2010-2011 season, the Bulls won their division title, but then lost to the Miami Heat in the playoffs. The team had the highest attendance in basketball that year.
